We recently received an email from a newsletter subscriber. She was asking about her 12-year-old son. Here’s part of her email:

“I’m the mother of a 12 year old ‘crystal child’ and I’d love some parenting advice. Can (my spirit guides) talk about these ‘new’ children? He eats funny (he has a very limited diet and isn’t willing to try new things), he’s in constant motion (sitting still is quite difficult), he is VERY headstrong (he doesn’t want to learn at all from any of my experience). On the other hand, he has such wonderful qualities of being so loving and getting along with everyone. From this quality alone, I can see why these children have come. So, any advice to help parents deal with these children would be greatly appreciated.”

I asked my spirit guides to comment on this mother’s email. Here’s what they said:

“These children are living from the heart, from the wise all-knowing perspective of their soul selves. They are following their inner guidance. They don’t care what others think of them. They do not fit ‘the mold’ — your preconceptions of what children ‘should’ be and how they ‘should’ act.

“They are free of the limitations you adults have imposed upon yourselves. They want none of that. They refuse to shackle themselves, as you have shackled yourselves.

“These children have come to remind you who you are — divine beings of light and love who are free to be whoever and whatever you choose. Free of society’s shackles. Free to simply BE who you are. And to do it joyfully.”

What are your thoughts about this mother’s experience? Have you had similar experiences with a “crystal child”? Please comment below.
